CANDLE LIGHTING — Louise Gettle, Theresa Field

Today we light three candles. The first candle reminds us of our hope in knowing Jesus as our Wonderful Counselor. The second reminds us of our joy in knowing a God who is powerful and mighty. We light the third candle to remind us that Jesus came to earth as the Prince of Peace. In a world filled with conflict and discord, we pray for harmony and unity as we work towards claiming the promise of peace on earth.
